With Noel being in law school, 3 little boys, church callings, and all other responsibilities that come with daily life, dinner is always the last thing that comes to my mind.
I don't have a ton of time to prep meals, but don't want my boys eating garbage every night. Because of this, I try and come up with simple meals that the boys will enjoy and that will help them stay healthy and grow up strong ("vegetables give you big muscles, boys!!") Also, we're trying to work on sports scholarships for the future...so there's that. ;)
I always have the ingredients in my pantry for my mom's chicken casserole. It's easy (I know the recipe by heart), it's simple (few ingredients and usually ones that you already have), and it's filling (chicken and vegetables...oh yeah!).
1 bag of NatureRaised Farms® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Portions
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 small can of evaporated milk
1 can of garden peas (drain)
1 stick margarine or butter
1 box of cornbread stove top stuffing
Spread cooked chicken in dish. Mix cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, evaporated milk, and garden peas. Pour mixture over chicken. Melt butter and mix in stove top stuffing. Spread on top.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
And that's that! This is also a really great meal to take to people in a disposable casserole dish.
Sam's Club offers NatureRaised Farms® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Portions in their freezer section. I really like this chicken because it's so easy to quickly take out to thaw or to throw in the slow cooker. It's also 100% natural* and has no antibiotics, hormones, or steroids**. So I know what me and my family are actually eating!
Life gets busy, and that's why it's so important to sit down with loved ones at the end of the day. Studies show that eating meals together builds stronger families...and that's my goal! I don't have time in this stage of my life to make gourmet meals, but recipes like this limit my time in the kitchen and maximize my time with family!
*No artificial ingredients, minimally processed**Federal regulations prohibit the use of added hormones or steroids in chicken
